The Driver’s Employer May Be Liable in Your Bacliff Commercial Vehicle Accident Case
Identifying the liable party in a commercial vehicle accident can be somewhat complex because of a legal doctrine known as respondeat superior. This doctrine allows some accident victims to hold the driver’s employer vicariously liable after a commercial vehicle accident. This liability may be possible in your case if:
- The liable driver was employed by the company at the time of the accident and was working as an employee and not as an independent contractor or another category.
- The driver was engaged in driving as a part of the “course and scope” of their job at the time of the accident.
Vicarious liability is important, especially for victims who suffer serious injuries. We can explain how this doctrine may affect your case during your case evaluation. Our free evaluations are available today by contacting our office.

Texas Law Puts a Time Limit on How Long You Can Wait to Act
Texas has a two-year statute of limitations on negligence injury cases, as described in the Civil Practice and Remedies Code. This is the statute of limitations that applies in most commercial vehicle accident cases. While many of these cases can reach financial recovery without going to trial, it is important you have the option to do so if necessary.
When we evaluate a case, we consider whether the two-year statute of limitations applies, or if you meet an exception. Occasionally, there may be additional deadlines that require us to act sooner. This is one reason why you should reach out to us about your case as soon as possible after your injuries stabilize.
